Head coach Dan Colella has guided the Blue Devil women to a 4-0 start.

'That team atmosphere': As fall rolls on, Duke swimming & diving making clear strides

A 3-0 start to a season is something to be proud of, and this is where Duke women’s swim & dive was before Nov. 6.  But by defeating Georgia Tech at home in the Taishoff Aquatic Center by 199-101 that Saturday, the Blue Devils were elevated to a historic start: 4-0 is territory Duke has been in just four times previously since 1980. Meanwhile, the men rallied but ultimately fell to the higher-ranked Georgia Tech team, losing 173-127.

Senior Cole Reznick is coming off a junior season in which he was voted the team's most valuable athlete.
